In Mavericks it was simple: click "Get Info" on any file and you could copy/paste the file path. This is no longer included in Yosemite.

I need to need to copy/paste paths frequently, like "/Users/Whoever/MyPath/File.app".

Is there any way to do this in Yosemite without resorting to the terminal?

You could drag the file into a Safari window and copy the path from the URL bar. Or drag the file into a Plain Text file in Text Edit. (As you can also do with Terminal.) EDIT: Safari will only accept certain types. Use a Text Edit file instead.
